Mont Marçal Extremarium Brut Reserva - "This almost clear colored Cava with very tiny bubbles opens with a very faint rose petal and mild toasted walnut bouquet. On the palate, this wine initially bursts with effervescent bubbles, then it becomes light bodied, nicely balanced and approachable. The flavor profile is a gentle apple with notes of nicely integrated minerality with a touch of lemon verbena. The finish is dry and its flavors stick around for a while. The Panel thought this was a very good sipping Cava. "

Mont Marçal Extremarium Brut Reserva - "Pale gold with a fine bead. Pungent aromas of musky pear, yellow plum, anise and lemon thyme. Pliant orchard fruit and melon flavors are given a refreshingly bitter edge by peach pit and quinine. Really stains the palate, finishing with excellent breadth, cut and grip. This actually seems young: I'd give it a year or so of bottle age. "

Mont Marçal Extremarium Brut Reserva - "Open and floral, with acacia and orange blossom on the nose. The palate is full-bore citrus, dealing orange and pink grapefruit. Lots of acidity and still full-bodied, with a solid finish that's zesty and lasting. Nice brut cava; offers more than average. "

MONT MARçAL VINíCOLA WINERY INFO

Overview: The winery Mont Marçal Vinícola was founded in 1975 by Manuel Sancho who, after many years of dedication to the world of the music, directed his activity towards a new art; the world of wine and cava. Since 2015, under new ownership, the philosophy of the winery and the dedication to producing quality wines under the Denominations of Origén Penedès, Catalunya, and Cava continue. The winery, originally a 14th century farmhouse and then a 19th century convent, is now a state-of-the-art winemaking facility.

History: Manuel Sancho's 230-acre estate, "Finca Manlleu," is located on a prominent chalky knoll five miles south of Vilafranca del Penedès overlooking the hamlet of Sant Marçal. One hundred acres are planted to Parellada, Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Chardonnay for white wines; Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for reds. The "Mont" provides 360-degree exposure, creating a wide variety of microclimates for maturation of the various varieties.

In 1975, Manuel Sancho purchased a neglected 19th-century convent, originally a 14th-century farmhouse, converting it to a state-of-the-art winemaking facility and initiating the restructuring of the vineyards. Recent excavation has expanded the CAVA aging and bottling capacity, at the same time revealing medieval underground passageways in the chalk which have been carefully preserved for additional bottle storage.

Intrinsic vineyard quality and careful handling of the grapes obtain a naturally-rich base wine in little need of dosage. Mont-Marçal Brut Reserva is produced from the indigenous white grapes, Parellada, Macabeo, Chardonnay and Xarel-lo, aged at least 24 months with the yeast, and disgorged on order for shipment.
